I have a BA in Education and have tutored privately and taught in the classroom.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BA in elementary education. I was certified in Illinois and my certification was for grades 1-8. I have also been certified in Florida and MI for teaching preschool. Since earning these certifications I have taught preschool through high school subjects. Reading and Math readiness are the most important areas of instruction for the preschooler. Kindergarteners begin the real work of reading and arithmetic while also continuing readiness activities. A firm foundation will ensure success in other subjects as well. Children learn best when they are interested so I try to keep lessons moving and rotate activities and games frequently to keep interest high. I tailor lessons to the specific needs of the child to maximize the time we spend in tutoring. I enjoy working will all elementary grades. I specialize in helping with homework, developing study skills and bringing skills up to par in reading and math.

Great Teacher

Nancy is a great teacher. My daughter has gained in confidence and knowledge. If you need a tutor please get in touch with Nancy!!

Sue, 12 lessons with Nancy

Specific help geared towards the ACT... great

Nancy covers ACT strategy and assists in all sections of the exam. She appears to be the right tutor for students needing ACT help.

John, 9 lessons with Nancy

Nancy is Amazing!

Nancy is tutoring my twins for the ACT with a short window to prep and with only a couple of sessions completed they are more confident, better prepared, and have a strategy to improve their scores. Thank you Nancy!

Mark, 6 lessons with Nancy

Positive.

My daughter looks forward to her tutoring appointments and always expresses how worthwhile they are. As we go forward in the year, it is good to know that Nancy is a phone call away.

Marcia, 6 lessons with Nancy

Wonderful help for ACT Prep

The moment we met Nancy we loved her. Our daughter was very comfortable with her and was encouraged after the first session with Nancy. Nancy had a way of explaining the ACT test that made sense to her. Nancy was very helpful in her knowledge of the ACT and the tips she gave to help aide in a successful score. We will be using Nancy again for other courses. Thanks Mrs. B, you are such a blessing to our family.

Lori, 14 lessons with Nancy

Great ACT tutor! Very flexible!

Our son has been taking weekly tutoring sessions with Nancy for about 2 months now. She has really been great in helping him identify the specific areas for improvement, reviewing key materials, and providing test-taking tips. The time and cost is well worth the effort. Just as important is Nancy's flexibility. Our son is very active in school and in the community (AP classes, varsity sports, scouts, church, etc.) and schedules can be hard to align from week to week. Nancy has been super flexible in finding and making time available to fit into his busy week.

ACT Test Score Improvement

Thanks to Nancy, my son's ACT test score went up 4 points! He was specifically tutored in Reading and his ACT Reading score went from a 17 to a 21. We were all so excited when we saw the test score. I am so happy that I found Nancy and hired her to tutor my son. She is a wonderful tutor and my son enjoyed working with her. She knows what she is doing and delivers results. Not only did she provide the knowledge and instruction to help my son, she also boosted his self-esteem as he seems a lot more confident in himself in this subject matter. I am very grateful to Nancy and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent tutor.

Gina, 7 lessons with Nancy

Very pleased.

First time meeting with Nancy and my son really liked her teaching abilities and instructions she gave him. Looking forward to more sessions.

Debie, 9 lessons with Nancy

Very patient.

We started working with Nancy B to improve my son's ACT scores. She has been very patient and calming, offering a systematic approach to achieve this goal. Her approach instills confidence in the student that he/she can achieve his/her goals. She is easy to work with, communicates well, and tries to be as flexible as possible.
